If there’s one thing you need in your life this spring it’s this jacket. Why, you ask? Let me explain.

I’ll admit it, I’m not much of a jacket girl. In the winter I wear my Canada Goose, in the spring and fall I wear my Barbour, and in the summer I wear a jean jacket (if I even need a coat at all!). I really don’t tend to stray from those three options. I’ve tried to wear “cooler” and trendier coats before, and they’ve all ended up pushed to the back of my closet, later to be donated to Goodwill. What can I say – I have my go-tos and they work for me. Once I realized that I never wore all those cute spring jackets I’ve purchased over the years, I swore them off. I didn’t let myself buy coats anymore, and I was doing SUCH a great job. Until I laid eyes on this pink moto jacket.

I know what you’re thinking – every blogger and their mother has this moto jacket by now. And that’s 100% true. This BLANKNYC coat was released during the #NSale last fall, and I don’t think there was a single blogger who didn’t jump on it. Not me though, as per my reasons stated above. I thought the coat was gorgeous, but I knew there was no chance I was going to wear a tan suede moto instead of my Barbour. It would have ended up like all the other coats that came before it – unworn and forgotten. So I stayed away, and eventually got pretty sick of seeing it on everyone! Fast forward to this season, when they released the same moto jacket in tons of gorgeous hues for spring. As soon as I saw the pink one I knew I was in serious trouble (the grey was a close second). I no longer cared that everyone had this coat, or that I never even wore coats like this. All I knew was that I had to have it. I’m happy to say that since purchasing this coat I’ve been giving my Barbour and jean jacket a much needed break. It’s definitely a statement piece and a great conversation starter – and I’ve already worn it WAY more than I thought I would. So perhaps I am a jacket person after all… I was just waiting for the right one 😉
